Products and Services...Beyond Frames
We carry a large selection of acid-free
mats, including 100% rag, buffered,
textured, and fabric. We cut custom
double and triple mats, multiple opening,
double thick and round or oval mats
. . . whatever your project requires.
We offer regular, non-glare, conservation (UV filtering), non-glare conservation, or Museum glass, which is practically invisible.
We also carry regular, UV protecting (OP-3), abraision resistant, and Optium museum acrylic for larger pieces and situations where light weight and/or shatter resistance is important. Our design staff will be happy to recommend the appropriate glazing for your project.
Dry mounting is a process by which a heat sensitive adhesive tissue is used to permanently attach a piece to a substrate, typically foam core or gator board. This non-archival process is the only way to get items perfectly flat and is great for posters, newspaper articles, and photographs.
Stretching, Pinning and Sewing
Fabrics such as needleworks, jerseys, and flags are either stretched and pinned on acid free foamcore or sewn to acid free matboard. Properly mounted and framed using archival materials and techniques these items will be protected indefinitely.
We will build the proper size stretcher bars to stretch or restretch your oils, acrylic, giclee prints or other works of art on canvas or linen.
We make mirrors to your size specifications in any of our custom frames, including round and oval frames. Both flat and beveled mirrors are available.
